Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: One of the greatest challenges for an organization is cultivating and sustaining a successful nursing research program. While university-based hospitals have several advantages in this area including experienced faculty, funding sources, and a large support base, the vast majority of healthcare facilities struggle with this challenge. Several years ago, this organization set sail into uncharted waters to build its research program, relying on the strength of its own resources. After establishing the Nursing Research Council, the journey proceeded along a winding path. The Council began by educating members how to critique research literature. From there, the program gradually advanced to designing and implementing its own studies, with direct care nurses as originators and integral partners. The Council continues to explore other facets of research focusing on nursing participation at all levels. This presentation is intended to guide other facilities in mapping out their journey. The quest begins with an accurate assessment of available resources, strengths and weaknesses. Keys on the map to be explored include: solutions to overcome the inertia of a non-research-based mentality; unique activities to educate nurses about research; formal and informal mentoring strategies; partnering with other facilities and schools of nursing; creative methods to encourage participation; exploring internal and external funding opportunities. The final leg of the journey is active involvement of direct care nurses in unit-based research studies, coaching them in authorship, and creating a culture of research/evidence-based practice. The quest is attained when patient care changes for the better.
